Spent an awesome day at Lover's Leap again recently. Hiked to the top and I feel like this one remembered me. He flew, landed maybe 30 feet away from me and hung out through an hour long rain storm before taking off and going on his or her way (fairly sure he was immature and couldn't sex him). #staywild #climbing #getoutstayout @natgeo @natgeocreative @natgeotravel

Amber pushing through the odd 5.9 crux start to the Farce 5.5 at Lover's Leap in Eldorado National Forest. After I had informed her it was an easy 5.6 start a solo circuitist informed me of my sandbaggery. #balance_odyssey @balance_odyssey @balancecommunity #lovewins #getoutstayout #staywild #nikonusa #kenko_tokina @natgeo @natgeocreative @natgeotravel

Ray keeping it casual in the beauty of the Lover's Leap 80' highline, which we walked after running up the classic Corrugation Corner. #climbing #getoutstayout #nikonusa #kenko_tokina @natgeocreative @natgeotravel @natgeo @balancecommunity #slackers

New variation start to route Millenia on El Gran Trono Blanco! Mexican shoestring, deemed 5.10a! Named due to the epic journey to find this route and crag! After driving around some dirt roads with cows galore, we finally found a shoestring on a tree.. The crux of the directions. Then we hiked down what we thought a different canyon distracted by amazing possibilities everywhere. After downclimbing a Palm tree and climbing up to a buttress across the way, Fabi of @chillino_rock_climbing spotted this gem. He sent the first variation pitch and then switched leads off with Mike D until we figured we were on traveled terrain. Many hours later after I gave up on excellent free climbing to save time and jugged behind with the gear (quite a trip in the dark, with no headlamp no less). We topped out and found a placard. The millenium route. An epic bivy with an epic campfire and we found our way back (no mission is over until you're back at the car).

Looking back at days spent climbing in SoCal. Reeaaching for the crux hold on Danger Boy 5.11a at Wheeler Gorge in Ojai. Truly amazing place featuring three types of rock in tight proximity. Sandstone, conglomerate and ( this ) Black Schist. #climbing #getoutstayout #nikonusa @nikonusa @kenko_tokina #kenko_tokina @americanalpine

Looking back at client work with Anaplan! Remember walking into their office of 20 employees years ago and now they are an unstoppable driving force for so many firms! @flaluyaux @anaplanning #tbt #throwbacktuesday

Having a Peregrine stare you down in flight is pretty intimidating, even when pushing the limits of my 300mm f/4… #nikonusa #natgeo @natgeocreative @natgeo @natgeotravel #loversleap

El Gran Trono Blanco otherwise known as the great white throne in all its glory! Over 1000 ft of beautiful rock in the arid and spikey desert of Mexico. @chillino_rock_climbing #climbing @lasportivagram @lasportivana #nikonusa #kenko_tokina #mexico

Crispy afternoon here in the alpine dodging thunderstorms. Looking back at my first run up Open Book At Tahquitz recently with Brad getting out after it. Apparently this 5.9 has been around as long as any ever, some might say the first. #nikonusa #camp4pix #getoutstayout @americanalpine

Just hanging around on the alcove swing in Yosemite. After a trip into the Valley checked in on some mutual friends who work in the park and went for a ride. #climbing #getoutstayout #fypyes
